CHRIS’S STORY: How His Trip To A Hospital In The USA Saved His Life


SecondStreet.org recently sat down with Chris Vander Doelen, a retired journalist and town councilor from Harrow, Ontario.

Chris had to travel to Los Angeles in California and pay privately for the scan that would ultimately save his life.
